Girl Cousins Rock!

On Saturday the 17th, Rebecca Joy and Baby Dayne played so well together! I took tons of pictures. They are so cute together. It just got me thinking about how wonderful girl cousins are!




This picture is from the Summer of 1996, my cousin Caitlin and I. We are on the hammock at our Grammie's house in the side yard. The hammock is from Costa Rica, where my cousin and her family had been living for awhile.

Click on the picture to link you to the blog that is doing this. I hope you take a minute to read it and if you feel so inclined (which i hope you do) sign up!

My Plants

So I have herbs growing out on my balcony. They are on the verge of dying, or at least I think they are. However, the basil blossomed in the past few weeks. And Steve whipped out the camera in time to take a video of this....

Rock-a-by Baby!

The clean clothes laundry basket was right underneath the rocking chair. Rebecca crawled into the basket than up onto the rocking chair. Soon after I finished the video. She crawled up onto the rocking chair, then over onto the couch! We have since moved the laundry basket.

Shake It!

This video here is of James shaking his body. I took this video Friday night (11/2) when everyone was at John and AJ's because the boys (the adult boys) were helping Rich and Ashley with the move.

Being Green?

So I'm not very green. But there is this swap that is to make/buy tote bags to replace the plastic grocery bags. There have been a lot of tote bags that you can buy at Target or grocery store and then use those every time. I'm cheap because I see those totes and I think "I don't want to spend the money on those bags." Though we are spending money on the bags we use with everything we buy from the store. My mother-in-law has a few of those bags and they seem to come in very handy. She seems to always being toting one around with her, especially in the summer. Furthermore, I'm not sure if I'm ready to replace my plastic bags. I reuse them as trash bags for diapers. I don't use just the normal trash because diapers need to be taken out faster than we fill up our normal trash. Anyways, the point is that there are patterns on this swap page for making a tote. Specifically pattern 2 is awesome! It gives step by step instructions on how to make a tote that actually folds up into itself in this little pocket on the outside of it. So now I just need to find someone willing to do this with me. A holiday project to make a tote. But I won't do this swap, maybe another one.

The Joys of Teeth



















Rebecca has been climbing into the clean clothes basket. And you may have noticed the wet marks on the blue sheet. That would be were Rebecca Joy was biting the sheet. But we noticed yesterday evening that Rebecca is getting another set of teeth in! Her top ones right next to the two front teeth are poking through.


This second picture is pretty funny with her buck teeth! I love it!

Happy Halloween

We went down to Livermore to trick or treat with Baby Dayne and Crewe and Little Bear (aka Clara). The two girls were tired when we got back from all that crazy trick or treating. But they did very good staying up late.

I got pictures today, from our friends, that are from Sept. 15, 2007 when Steve took Rebecca Joy wakeboarding for her first time.
Rebecca is holding hands with her boyfriend, Max.
